Cherry Berry Smoothie Bowl

 

Smoothie bowls are a delicious alternative to smoothies! I feel I drink smoothies too quickly sometimes so I like to make them a little thicker and eat them with a spoon. When we chew, our food mixes with a digestive enzyme called salivary amylase which breaks down carbohydrates in our mouths.

Sipping through a straw by-passes this important enzyme, making it take longer for our digestive system to break down food. If you are going to use a straw, make sure to chew your smoothie so it mixes with your saliva.
